I have the same problem. http always redirects to https. At least, this site.

yes, that is by design. https is by default.

I cannot download from https because of the error. I have to edit the url to http. Could the https certificate be validated?

I am using Windows XP/IE8 and a download manager called Flashget. Like others I have noticed this only recently. And find I can download if I edit the url from https to http.
In April I will be using Windows 7 and IE11.
Hope I have answered your questions.

I have three browsers, Opera (versions 12 and 15), IE 8.0.6001 and Google Chrome 34.0.1847 running under Win XP. I get the https error message (bad security certificate) on all three browsers with the exception of the older Opera version 12 which is what I am using now to write this post. I have an android tablet also, and have had no trouble logging in to archive.org with the tablet.

Seems to be a PC browser security issue.

Hello Mr. Kaplan; here's my info on this recent problem. This is probably way too much information, but I figure too much is better than too little:

Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3, Internet Explorer 8 (the most recent version that will work on XP)

Not many of the people posting about this problem have given their OS/browser info, but when they have, it's always been Internet Explorer 8. I've also seen something called 'Trend Micro' (anti-virus?) mentioned several times.

The problem started around the beginning of March. It may have started with video files a day or two before audio files; I remember having a problem with video before it became an across-the-board issue (although my memory may be playing tricks; I wasn't paying much attention when the problem first started.)

Here's my situation, as of 2pm Pacific time, March 11 2014.

-------------------------------------

Any Archive page I visit, with the exception of any forum page, causes I.E.8 to display this message in an information bar across the top of the page: "To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has blocked this website from displaying content with security certificate errors. Click here for options..."

If I click the bar, then click "Display Blocked Content", previously hidden jpegs will be displayed, but audio and video are unaffected.

-------------------------------------

All players, both audio and video, look normal, and the video players are properly displaying their large thumbnail in the player, as well as thumbnails at the left side.

If I click on the play button on a video player, I get the orbiting circles icon indicating that it's starting, then after a second I get the message "Error loading media; File not found", with the exclamation-point-in-a-triangle logo indicating an error.

In audio players, if I click on the play button or a file name in the playlist, there's no error message, but nothing happens.

-------------------------------------

If I right-click a file's link and select 'Save Target As...', I get this dialogue box:

Internet Explorer cannot download (FILE NAME) from archive.org.

An unexpected error has occurred.

-------------------------------------

If I try to download a file by left-clicking on the link, the page jumps to Internet Explorer's page reading:

There is a problem with this website's security certificate.

The security certificate presented by this website was issued for a different website's address.

Security certificate problems may indicate an attempt to fool you or intercept any data you send to the server.

We recommend that you close this webpage and do not continue to this website.

Continue to this website (not recommended).

-------------------------------------

Once again, I say thank you for all that you do, Mr. Kaplan.

Me, I use Windows XP and different browsers, but Internet Explorer (8, the last IE version compatible with XP) shows this mistake. Other browsers don't. Just wonder why.
